TxDOT Save a Life

The Texas Center for the Judiciary is the proud recipient of a Traffic Safety Grant from the Texas Department of Transportation.

With this site we hope to provide additional resources to judges who preside over DWI cases. We recognize that a DWI case can be one of the most complex and challenging criminal cases for the trial judge to preside over and for the sentencing judge to supervise. Jury selection is difficult, and the trial raises complex issues involving a mixture of scientific, expert, and lay testimony. The purpose of this site is to help Texas judges who handle these cases by providing legal resources, educational articles on pertinent subjects, a forms depository, and a convenient forum for Texas judges to exchange their ideas directly with each other.

To inquire about educational programs, please contact Ms. Holly Doran, Program Director.

The Texas Center for the Judiciary wishes to express its gratitude to Mr. Terry Pence, Traffic Safety Director, Traffic Operations Division and Mr. Frank Saenz, Alcohol and Other Drugs Programs Manager, Texas Department of Transportation, for their valuable assistance in procuring funding and helping to implement this web site.
